Great little hotel within walking distance of Universal Studios (approx. 10 mins walk). The place is exceptionally clean, the staff are friendly and the beds super comfy. For the location, the price is fantastic, and it includes free parking, free wifi and free breakfast (try the blueberry waffle mix). The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is that...

Great location for Universal Studios, free parking and wifi also resonable rates which is hard to find in this area. Friendly staff and a great free breakfast. Eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, fresh fruit yogurt cereal. Very good value. Rooms nice size.

Stayed here - Mon-Weds. No Frills, although that is what I was looking for. The price was right. We only stayed here to sleep. Very good location to many attractions - Universal Studios, CBS Studios, Beverly Hills, Hollywood. Room was very nice and clean. Serves breakfast - it was ok.

I choosed this hotel because of the proximity of Universal Studios. Complimentary breakfast and parking was also a plus. The hotel was perfect, breakfast was ok (I liked the automated pancake maker). Service was very nice. And it was no propbleme to leave the car for the whole day on the last day: great !.

Good hotel with good size rooms. The location is near Universal and you can walk it from the hotel (Hotel offers free car parking) but its about 20mins and uphill. Bit of a killer before you spend all day on your feet in lines waiting for rides... Breakfast is the usual Holiday Inn breakfast. Like most hotels I stayed in...

First impression of hotel was not great you feel you are going into a darkish car park to reach reception. However we found the area safe it has a Starbucks across the room which we used after visiting the park. The walk to the park was quite long but we are 70 and could manage it alright, it took about...

My husband and I stayed here last month (Aug) it was probably the worse Holiday Inn I've stayed in. Our room was on the second floor and it had small windows which looked out on to a small road or something like that. The room was so dark I called it our cave! The air conditioning was so noisey it...

We chose this hotel b/c it was close enough to Universal Studios Hollywood but not costing the high price like Sheraton or Hilton that was even closer. It does take about 15 minutes to walk to the base of Universal Citywalk but additional 15 minutes through Citywalk to get to front entrance of the Universal Studios Hollywood. No shuttle available...

We wanted to be close to Hollywood/Universal Studios. It IS in walking distance, but we chose to pay the $15 and park at Universal Studios anyway. The walk would have been about a mile each way. This hotel has Family Rooms that have a King bed in one room, and two Queens in another with 2 full bathrooms and very...
